Ethiopian Women and Children of the Dassanach Tribe Make Wigs Out of Bottle Caps


French photojournalist Eric Lafforge has captured images of Ethiopian women of the Dassanach tribe, in the village of Omorate, who wear wigs they have created out of bottle caps. He posted the visually stunning photos on his Flickr account with the caption.

The Daasanach people collect the caps of the Coca and beers in the bars of Omorate and make wigs with them.

The photos, to me, are a testament to the creativity of black women when it comes to hair. What are your thoughts?

Be sure to check out Eric Lafforge’s Flickr account for more stunning photos.
